U-M Students Mobilizing to Help Haiti

Carrie Rheingans

On the Wednesday morning after the recent earthquake hit Haiti, students across U-M campus started mobilizing to create fundraisers and garner other donations to assist in the relief efforts in Haiti. SPH’s own Dr. Armando Matiz from the Health Behavior and Health Education Field Experience Office called a meeting of interested individuals the Thursday after the quake and things took off from there. The School of Public Health is working with others across campus to coordinate efforts. Please see the links below to learn more:
